1/3 c Organic safflower oil

1 pn Salt

3 c Whole wheat flour

----------------------------------FILLING---------------------------------- 1 tb Sesame oil

1 bn Green onion; finely chopped

3 md Carrots; diced

1/4 ts Curry powder

1 tb Tamari

1/4 c Water

1 tb Kudzu (Japanese arrowroot)

Combine water, oil, and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and beat the mixture with a whisk until it has a milky appearance. Add to flour in a large bowl. Gently knead the dough just until mixed well. Form into a ball and let sit for 30 minutes (or cover and place in a refrigerator until needed and then bring to room temperature.) For the filling: heat oil in a skillet. Saute onions and carrots for 1 minute. Sprinkle with salt and curry powder and add chopped spinach. Cover and steam over medium heat until spinach wilts and the carrots are tender, about 4 minutes. Season with tamari. Dissolve kudzu in 1/4 cup water, add to spinach mixture, and cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly, to thicken and glaze. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Divide the dough in half and roll out until about 1/8" thick. Using a saucer or a small plate as a guide cut the dough into 4" circles. Place 2 Tbs. of filling in the middle of each circle. Fold over and pinch edge shut. Using a fork, poke a few holes in each samosa. Place on an oiled cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Delicious hot or cold.
